The third week of January is often said to be the most depressing time of the year… And although science says otherwise, we’ll take any excuse to surround ourselves with things that make us happy – family, friends and a bit of retail therapy!

Nail art has hit the mainstream and we love the looks designed by essie Canada’s Lead Nail Artist, Rita Remark at World MasterCard Fashion Week. [Cosmetics Magazine]

We fell in love with Bourbon in 2012 and we don’t plan on ending this affair anytime soon. Winter 2013 and it’s keeping us warm on the rocks.  Looking ahead we can expect some Wild Turkey 81 cocktails on a summer patio and a rustic sip or two in the fall. [Wedding Bells]

Feeling a bit blue after the holidays? Nothing says mid-winter pick me up like fashion-inspired cocktails featuring favourites SKYY Vodka, Aperol, Frangelico and bottlegreen. [Fashion Magazine]

We’ve already shown our love for stila’s Sparkle Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Electric green. It’s the perfect shade to rock Pantone’s Colour of the Year – Emerald and we’re glad [Flare] loves it too!

Still holding onto a few unwanted gifts from the holidays? Chances are, if the purchaser bought them online, they can still be returned! One of the best return policies, we’ve heard of? SHOP.CA’s 365 day return promise. [Globe and Mail]

Skiing is the one outdoor activity we actually look forward to during January! Explore the slopes and relax in the chalet decked out in Hi-Tec’s New Moon Boots. Comfort and style, we’ll take it! [Sweat Equity Magazine]
